Water stored in Blackfoot Reservoir is used to irrigate lands on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation and other lands in the vicinity of Blackfoot, Idaho. Blackfoot Reservoir is managed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) in Fort Hall. Blackfoot Reservoir Campground and 5 campgrounds along the Blackfoot Riverare managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Both BIA and BLM are agencies in the U.S. Department of the Interior. Blackfoot Reservoir has a very good population of rainbow, cutthroat trout and carp. Its islands are home to pelicans, cormorants and gulls. Its waters are used by waterfowl, waterbirds and shorebirds. Blackfoot Reservoir covers 18,000 surface acres when full, the second largest reservoir in southeastern Idaho. The main dam was built 55 feet high above the streambed. Blackfoot Reservoir has a usable storage capacity of 413,000 acre-feet at a design maximum water surface elevation of 6124'. So at this elevation it will stay cooler.
